Sustainability

We are committed to leaving the world a better place than we found it and are working toward net zero environmental impact by 2035. For us, this means reducing or offsetting all greenhouse gas emissions and sending zero solid waste to landfill; developing innovative energy- and water-saving products; and encouraging people to take action.

What if we didn’t see waste as waste?

Inspired by the principles of biomimicry, Kohler associates passionate about the environment and determined to make a difference developed the WasteLAB, an incubator that finds new uses for manufacturing waste.

Can we be transparent for a moment?

Form follows function. And the environment.

So much goes into designing products that live up to Kohler’s level of quality and design, including understanding the impact a product will have on the environment throughout its life cycle.

Our sustainability strategy, properly conceived and executed, should not be about compromise or massive tradeoffs. We believe it should be a win for the consumer, the associate, the environment and the company. — David Kohler, President and Chief Executive Officer
